Dr. Geoff Gelley DC, MSc, FRCCSS(C) established the Gelley Chiropractic Clinic in 1993. His clinic is dedicated to providing a non-surgical management of the spine and other musculoskeletal conditions. Dr. Gelley is the only chiropractic sports specialist (FRCCSS) practicing in Winnipeg. The sports fellowship program is an intensive post-doctoral field of study which includes an academic focus in sports healthcare, practical on-field training, and other related criteria that prepare these elite doctors to serve as experts in the sports health care system.

Accordingly, Dr Gelley is able to apply a sports medicine model of care which integrates spinal manipulation, ART®, acupuncture/myofascial needling, nutrition and rehabilitative exercises to help his patients (athletes and non-athletes alike) achieve optimal health. This integrated approach is based upon the latest research in treatment and exercise protocols.

Dr. Gelley is a strong advocate of patient knowledge and therefore promotes patient education based on the most recent scientific evidence. His quest for knowledge prompted him to complete a Masters of Science (MSc) degree in Medical Rehabilitation at the University of Manitoba in 2011. Dr. Gelley is currently a doctoral student in the Applied Health Sciences - PhD Program at the University of Manitoba.
